Is it my imagination, or does that actress look too old for the part? And what's the sailing ship for? As an adaptation, this isn't looking up.
The actress playing Alice is 18. Having any actors younger then that forces production to be really long since they can only work a limited hour each day. Unless having actors be kids is extremely important like with the Harry Potter movies it's better to go with the older actors. Besides what's the matter with an older Alice? This is another interpretation by another director and I like that he is trying new things with it already.
The sailing ship is there because it's secretly a sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean. Jack Sparrow being in it automatically gives it another 100 million in the boxoffice.
